A Stark Reality

Leeja Stark BandLeeja Stark

What do Panic at the Disco & Queen have in common? Leeja Stark. Leeja joins us this month for her first visit on the show. We discuss the local scene including bands like Amber Alexis, skell, The Bloody Seamen, & Dethelehem. She talks about the Women of Metal show that the band played with Beyond Eden, Mind Maze, & A Sound of thunder. Leeja spoke about their work with producer Ulrich Wild (Pantera, Otep, Stolen Babies, Emilie Autumn etc) on their latest EP and how they are currently working on writing a new LP with him. She speaks on how the band has handled song writing in the past and how it progressed over the years.
Leeja admits not knowing who Alice Cooper was when being told that her band’s song Welcome to the Night and her theatrics that go along with it in the video reminded them of his song Welcome to My Nightmare.

Biography

Leeja Stark is an American Experimental Rock band from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. The band finds influences in rock legends (David Bowie, Kate Bush, Annie Lennox, Freddie Mercury, King Crimson, Stevie Nicks, etc). Their sound has progressed from electronic rock to electronic progressive rock over the last 2 EP’s becoming more technical but remaining true to the lyrics and melody of each song. The goal of this band is to write great music. If it’s not about the music why play in a band?

In early 2012, Leeja Stark released a concept EP called House of Eyes about
a girl caught in the throes of the demon world. It begins with the song Supernatural in which an incantation to release the demon from the body is recited and ends with a chilling ballad Impossible Things that leaves the story to be continued as we find out she is with child.
Also in 2012 they released a single, Symptoms of Insanity. The song is a duet featuring screamer Bret Stark. The video received almost 200,000 views in its first 24 hours on Youtube.
In another song-writing collaboration, Leeja has co-written the song Charming Arms with producer/musician Christopher Lee Simmonds (Filter, Thought Industry, Good Charlotte, Marcy’s Playground). The message about the agony of drug abuse is written in Simmonds’ music as well as the lyrics. Charming Arms has been released in three forms; the original, a Dis-Honesty mix with an electronic dubstep sound, and the raw Honesty mix highlighting Leeja’s vocals.
Most recently (2014-2015) LS has been working with producer Ulrich Wild (Pantera, Otep, Stolen Babies, Emilie Autumn etc) on their EP Cosmic Queen which was released April 9th 2015. https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/cosmic-queen-ep/id984380388
They also produced a vaudeville-esque music video for the song Welcome to the Night. On the horizon for the band is a 3rd EP, as well as numerous shows throughout the north east for the remainder of 2015.
